    If I buy outside the EU I have to get CITES - and the UK end of that will cost me ( probably) 4 times the price of the plant - I think it is £76 pounds sterling per species at the moment. But plants can be imported into other EU countries much more cheaply - the last time I heard a permit for any number of species into Germany was less than £20 . I did say madness of our system here - botanists (who advise the Government about what rules are needed ) would really love there to be no trade in orchids at all ; " they belong on the jungle" they say - or of course collected, and dried and pressed and put into their herbariums , or maybe grown in their collections so that they have live plants to slice up and do their DNA thingy....

    If you go to the UK version of that site I gave you, the same seller is listed with the price and shipping in pounds. I do not see anything saying it can't go to the UK.

    I think the seller would be only too happy to send it to the UK. The problem lays with the country it is being imported into. I can't take a one hour drive to Buffalo and buy an orchid at the show and bring it back into Canada without paperwork from the seller guaranteeing that the plant is pest and disease free and I believe it has to be bare root. Then there is CITES. The last time I checked their fee was $80. CITES is a good idea, protects endangered species as best it can but has some rather heavy handed rules and regulations regarding nursery grown plants. I believe the protection should be there for wild plants but if they go extinct in the wild (as many do) and there are none in collections then they are just plain extinct.

    Don't start me off ! CITES was invented after someone ( actually, our Queen's husband - Prince Philip ), said "we must save the tiger " . The system (Treaty) took 18 months to draft, all done by lawyers , diplomats and zoologists. When it was ready to be signed off, by representatives of 70 odd countries, they fixed a date for a signing ceremony , a month later, and then someone said - hey,why is this only for animals ? Lets add plants. And they did, without a botanist in sight... No-one told them that if you cut a tiger into 4 parts , you have a dead tiger ; if you cut a plant in four - why,you (can) have 4 live plants - or even if you meristem it, 4 thousand, or 4 million....

    Beautiful and very unusual with those spots. Thank you Geoff (Dorsetman) for looking up the parentage. Will be on the lookout for this Latouria hybrid.
